Keep Clean

Keep the bowl clean and do not use metal appliances in the bowl. Here's what you need to know, the most critical part of the rice cooker function is to keep the heating element clean. I have a habit of putting clean dishes back before wiping them on the rice cooker. Needless to say, the heating element is the metal circle in the center. This is the core of the rice cooker and we need to be very careful to protect this part. If anything does boil and gets inside the cooker, be sure to wipe it clean before using it again. It's really hard to clean up when burned on rice goo.

When you have neglected your rice cooker for a long time, then you may have noticed that the rice cooker has brown things burning on the heating element. You can try scraping it off special gently with a very fine sandpaper or fine mesh steel wool. But when you attempt to clean it before it gets to that point though since this abrasive action may damage the element.

Given the proper care, a good rice cooker will last for many years. Good rice cookers tend to be expensive, unless you can afford to burn them, you'll probably want your rice cooker to last a long time. So keep the rice cooker clean and take care of it!

First remove the dried food with sandpaper or wire cotton. Whatever you use, you need to safely wipe off the dry, sticky material on the surface of the round plate.

Now, after wiping away the dirt from the surface of the plate, you should use white vinegar and water equivalent and gently rinse with a hard cloth. If the rag does not remove dirt, it is effective to use a damp scrubber or wire cotton. 

Finally, after removing all stains and dirt, clean the front part of the plate and rinse it with a dishwasher or detergent.

In these steps, you can use a soft cloth for safety reasons.

Step 6: Dried Up And Reinstalled

Dry the part before placing it. Try drying and rinsing with a clean cloth. You can try to dry it individually so that each part is taken care of and, most importantly, extends the life of the device. That's why you have to take care of it before you put it in place.

Step 7: Full Body Clean

Now that you've cleaned the heating plate and dried all the basic components, it's time to clean your entire body with soapy water. This cleaning keeps the cookware clean outside. Since you've done heating plate cleaning before.

Step 8: Final Check

After cleaning, rinsing, and drying the equipment components, the rice cooker must be checked for proper operation. If you let water droplets into the circuit, it would be catastrophic.  So do not let water into the circuit before cleaning.

However, if there are no problems with the operation of the device, you can say that the cleaning was successful.
